Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.12.19

Scripture

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.

Proverbs 18:2

Reflection

Don’t argue or debate with a person who has clearly shown themselves to be a fool—what does that then say about you? I used to debate tirelessly with fools and after much time I realized that I was serving their purpose but not God’s.

Where in the Bible can you find passages of any ambassador of God’s, a devout leader and follower of Christ, arguing with a complete fool? I haven’t found one yet—there is a reason for that.

So let’s follow this model and pray for fools, but don’t argue with them or try to change them—they love the darkness of ignorance.

Prayer

Father, thank You for such knowledge and wisdom, and the gift of discernment—where I have the intelligence to think before I speak, the courage to stand up for what’s right, and the understanding to know not to argue with fools—for they know not what they speak.

Father, hold my tongue when I feel the need to tussle verbally with an individual who obviously doesn’t walk in Your light, or is too self-absorbed to realize that they’ve strayed from the light. I thank You now for redirecting me from those who would waste my time blabbering rhetoric, and instead for pointing me in the direction of enlightenment where I may serve Your Kingdom most effectively. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

I love you all!
